Medical Alert Saves Customer From Bleeding to Death
When a customer from Carollton, Georgia fell, he struck the back of his head and started bleeding profusely. Dizzy and unable to stand, he used his two-way medical alert device, which was around his neck at the time, to contact the EMC Security monitoring center for help. While the first operator stayed on the line with him, a second immediately dispatched emergency medical services to his home, also alerting the customer's son as to what had happened.
Just 7 minutes after he first pressed the button on his pendant, an ambulance arrived and the customer got the help he desperately needed. As always, we are glad that we were able to help and grateful that our customer made a full recovery.
So, as the weather gets colder and going out and about gets more dangerous, remember that there is no greater gift than peace of mind - something a medical alert device can provide easily, and at a low cost.
